i3 Business Solutions Recognized for Excellence in Managed IT Services
Grand Rapids, MI, February 20, 2018 – i3 Business Solutions, dedicated to accelerating business results, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named i3 Business Solutions to its 2018 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiency, and maximize their return on IT investments.
In today’s fast-paced business environments, MSPs play an important role in helping companies leverage new technologies without straining their budgets or losing focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list shines a light on the most forward-thinking and innovative of these key organizations.
The list is divided into three categories: the MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.
“Managed service providers have become integral to the success of businesses everywhere, both large and small,”
said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company.
“Capable MSPs enable companies to take their cloud computing to the next level, streamline spending, effectively allocate limited resources and navigate the vast field of available technologies. The companies on CRN’s 2018 MSP 500 list stand out for their innovative services, excellence in adapting to customers’ changing needs and demonstrated ability to help businesses get the most out of their IT investments.”
Michael Ritsema, president of i3 Business Solutions said,
“We’re honored to, again, be recognized amongst the best technology service providers in the nation. The award affirms our commitment to supporting the business and technology demands of small to medium businesses in West Michigan. i3’s continued success and growth are due to our IT Superstars who deliver consistent and predictable checklist process excellence.”
